Yes, I'm having this issue, too. I have found out that DMA (or UDMA) mode just gets disabled from time to time. The only way I have discorevered to prevent this is to AUTODETECT all drives at startup. Just set them to AUTO in your bios. Startup process should last a little more but your DMA settings will remain.
Forgot to mention that you may need to delete primary or secondary IDE channel (or both) and reboot to let windows recognize them again. After that, manually adjust access mode if neccesary.
